Exhibit Commissions: an open call for creatives

Monday 16 December | Rohini Denton - Interactive Producer

Since 2017, We The Curious has travelled the length and breadth of Bristol, to find out what makes our city curious. Having gathered over 10,000 real questions from real people, we are using them to transform how we work and our physical exhibits. 

We are inviting Bristol and South West based artists, filmmakers and creative practitioners to submit expressions of interest for exhibit commissions, to be part of our new permanent exhibition launching in 2020.

We are looking for individuals or collectives to create film, audio, photography and interactive art installation content that respond to and explore big questions asked by the people of Bristol and beyond.

This is part of Project What If, our mission to re-imagine the science centre. We are placing people’s questions at the heart of the scientific discovery, exploring ideas from all angles and colliding the worlds of art, science and culture. In our spaces, everyone is not just welcome but valued participants in a connected curious adventure.
